Keywords:Japanese construction market, contract management, construction management education
This paper reports on a basic study on the current condition of the Japanese construction market, the third largest market in the world, and contract management in Japan. It also deals with the current condition of construction management education, which is the basis for contract management in Japan and three ASEAN countries namely, Indonesia, Singapore, and Thailand. The Japanese construction market is introduced in terms of its scale and overseas expansion of leading Japanese construction companies. The characteristics of the Japanese construction market and a survey on Japanese construction management education are introduced. The curriculums of construction management education in three ASEAN universities are surveyed. Finally, by comparing the three ASEAN universities and Japan horizontally and internationally, the current condition of construction management education in civil engineering is obtained. The outcome deepens understanding of access to each construction market and can be the first step toward construction business collaboration between Japanese and some ASEAN countries.
